To combat against boredom in his small hometown of Castricum, Mitchell began organising concerts at the local youth center from 2008. After moving to Rotterdam to attend the Zadkine Pop Academie, the urge to organise concerts returned. In 2011, he organised his first event in Rotterdam, at Roodkapje during their stay at the Meent. From that moment onwards he programmed for several stages and festivals such as Eendracht Festival, Ekcit, Iguanarama at Pompenburg, The Gravel Pit and our own Roodkapje Sub space. Over the past 6 years he has worked as booking agent for Rock ’n Roll Highschool, supporting bands like Iguana Death Cult, The Homesick and many others, bringing them to stages ranging from V11 to Lowlands’ X-ray venue. As part of the HCL residency, Mitchell will continue to focus on live music, with the aim of bringing people from different disciplines together, and hopes to inspire fruitful collaborations between the Dutch art and music scenes.
